Welcome to GFO Adam. Glad you found the questionnaire.

Hope you stick around. It's a small forum but with some pretty good members.

Hey Capt! Thanks for the warm welcome.

Well - I'm actually going to a gig tonight to see KAWALA in Islington which is my current favourite band. They sit somewhere between Bombay Bicycle Club and Two Door Cinema Club, if you know your indie bands, that is. :lol:

I've heard of them before.
Actually going to see twenty one pilots on Sunday.
Hope you have fun. You go to a lot of concerts?

Hey Adam, welcome to the forum :)

Janeway's coffee addiction certainly took precedence over all else :lol:

Ah sweet! I'd like to see them they look like an amazing live act.

I do my best although I'm not great at getting the tickets. I'm quite lucky as I live quite close to Alexandra Palace where I've seen Bastille and Disclosure before. Muse were excellent but that was at the Emirates Stadium.

I'm not sure if she really cared about getting home - just that the replicators stayed online. :lol:

Hey Adam, welcome. As a fellow Londoner, are you giving any time to hanging out with the un-showered protestors, or doing as I’m doing and moving the location you work out of just to avoid them as best as possible?

Haha thank you!

No I am giving them a wide birth but luckily I don't work in the centre of town. When I'm down there next week they should be gone.

The hubby works in Westminster so yes has found them to be a bit of a pain.

She definitely sabotaged a trans warp coil or two, just to stay in the delta quadrant, hunting her coffee nebulas :lol:

Your inner-trekkie need not lurk in the closet my friend! *insert vulcan salute here*

I'm quite excited for Picard - hoping it lays a foundation for Kate Mulgrew to come back to Janeway at some point. We can forget Sisko. :lol:

My inner-trekkie is outed! :D

Agreed, I'm not a fan of DS9 either.

You never know, from what I've seen in the trailers there seems to be quite a few cameos on the go from old cast members. They may yet wheel her out of retirement, hooked up to a caffeine drip :lol:
